Town Sends Dog Poop Back to Owners: Good Policy?

A city in Spain is address its dog poop problem head-on with an aggressive approach to dog owners who don't clean up after their pets. A group of twenty volunteers in Brunete, Spain, have been picking up after rogue owners and sending the mess to their homes in boxes.

And apparently it's working.

Their method is simple: When they see an owner neglect to clean up after their pets, they strike up a conversation with the owner, find out the name and breed of the dog, and look it up in a database. According to The Telegraph, the town has seen a 70 percent drop in dog droppings. We're not sure if that's just a result of 20 people going around picking the stuff up, but we'll take their word for it.

This isn't their first attempt at addressing this problem, either. Last you they deployed a robot that chased negligent owners.

Do you like Brunete's approach, or is it too much?

    We should collect it and send it to the Senate. They might identify with it since they are full of it anyway. This brings up another point. Why has Washington DC not been devastated by a killer tornado? All the occupants are full of hot air.

    Because it shouldn't be on other people's private property? Overreaction yes, but poop is smelly and why should strangers pick up after irresponsible pet owners?

    Thank you. Yes, I may have been a drama queen but it's not like I didn't let it go so many times before. I mean, this person came out of nowhere and judged me over something so minimal that I only did once.

    I pick it up if it's in my yard! Also, so nature is allowed to just ruminate on public sidewalks?

    Pick up your dog's crap, it's not that hard! People that let their dogs poop where people walk are more than inconsiderate.

    Brunete was the site of a major battle during the Spanish Civil War, so the folk there are used to violent confrontations!

    I can't see why it shouldn't work...& I can't see the one allowing the "offense" to happen having any ill feelings toward the town, as it could be worse--the town could have PELTED him with the POO!!

    The proper way to return dog poop to its owner:

    STEP 1: Bag & Burn

    flaming dog feces

    STEP 2: Point & Laugh

    burning dog poop

    Any questions?

    If it works then it is a good policy as people should clean up the poop of their dogs.

    You did not offer to identify the dog poop by costly DNA, so how you for sure gonna know you have sent it to the correct person? DS! You would send the poop to those you hate, now wouldn't you? And turn this into the new burning of crosses across towns and cities. A form of harassment if I ever heard of one.

    Allow it to fertilize the grass. However, if it is on a sidewalk it would be nice to scoot it into the grass......So, who pooper scoops the wildlife's poop?

    Unfortunately, raw or uncomposted dog poop is not at all good for lawns.
